About Brigitte Rikers
Wholeheartedly I welcome you and I would like to share my story with you. It began a long time ago, growing up experiencing my parent's love for antiques. Since I was a little girl, I have always been fascinated by very old and beautiful pieces of antique.
My business evolved from my passion for searching antiques and architecturals from Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, England and Scandinavia, fascinated by the stories behind each of these lovely pieces I found. I'm swept away by all beautiful things and touched by style, with a deep respect for everything authentic and with an undetermined feeling for harmony.
The house I lived in when I was younger and it's surroundings, was the most wonderful and inspirational place.
On a regular basis I travel through Belgium, France, Spain, Scandinavia, Italy and England, in search for the most wonderful, enchanting and authentic antiques and architecturals. Also searching for painted furniture with it's beauty of imperfection and lovely goods fot the home and garden. Back home, all the new pieces will be restored or upholstered when needed, or simply allow them to stay authentic and with respect that it is most beautiful with faded grandeur and beauty of imperfection. The fabrics I use are from Belgium, England and The Netherlands and most of the furnishings and soft furnishings are custom made.
I also decorate and furnish homes, using my antiques, architecturals and everything you see on my website.
